‘Maps to the Stars’ and ‘The Rover’ on Empire’s ‘The 10 Most Exciting Movies At Cannes 2014′ 2 comments
Between May 14 and 25, the Cannes International Film Festival will play host to some of the most gifted and glamorous faces in movieland. Empire, whose face likes to think it combines both qualities into one geeky visage, will be there covering every gala, screening and soirée worth physically breaking into. But which movies will hoover up the most attention in the Midi? Our very own Damo-on-the-spot, Damon Wise, has picked his ten to keep an eye out for.
Category: In Competition
Director: David Cronenberg
Cronenberg has been a frequent visitor to the Croisette since Crash made the competition in 1996. Maps To The Stars – written by Bruce Wagner, screenwriter and author of the eccentric Oliver Stone-producer mini-series Wild Palms – promises to be the kind of fractured genre riff that has characterised the director’s recent work (notably A History Of Violence), dealing with a dysfunctional Hollywood family. Evan Bird, playing a troubled former child star, heads up an impressive cast that includes Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson.
Category: Midnight Screening
Director: David Michôd
David Michôd, who made a big splash with his debut, Animal Kingdom, has been tucked away in the Midnight Screening strand, which suggests that his latest film, ostensibly another crime drama, might not quite be what it seems. Though you wouldn’t know it from the trailer, The Rover is actually sci-fi variant set in a post-apocalyptic world, this time starring Guy Pearce as the title character, who teams up with Robert Pattinson to track down the gang that stole from him.
Dane DeHaan has revealed that he made no attempt to become friends with Robert Pattinson before they started filming Life
The Amazing Spider-Man actor stars alongside the Twilight heartthrob in Anton Corbijn’s drama, focusing on the friendship between Life photographer Dennis Stock (Pattinson) and Hollywood icon James Dean (De Haan).
“It’s an interesting relationship that they have. They do become close in the film, and they do become friends, but they’re not friends from the start,” he said.
“So what we did is we didn’t try to make any sort of friendship beforehand. We got there and that’s when our friendship started. So as it was happening on screen, it was also happening in real life.”
The 28-year-old said they bonded on set, adding: “He’s a really nice guy. He’s totally chill and he’s fun to hang out with, and he’s fun to be on set with. We had a great time.”
Sir Ben Kingsley and Joel Edgerton also star in Life, which wrapped shooting on April 1.
“We just finished a week and a half ago,” Dane said.
Life, which is now in post-production, is expected to be released later this year.

Here are some media reactions to ‘The Rover’ trailer which has been released earlier today
Starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, The Rover is a twist on your standard post-apocalyptic story. It’s not set in some zombie or virus stricken world, it just takes place a decade after society as we know it has collapsed. It then follows a nomadic man (Pearce) who is seeking revenge on a gang of thieves who stole his car, and to get that revenge he’s willing to team up with one of their own (Pattinson).
As you can see from the below trailer, The Rover looks like a beautifully photographed, intense tale of one man who decides to say screw it all and chase down the men who took the one thing he had left. And if you’re the type who instantly dismisses Pattinson because of his Twilight days, this is further evidence as to why he shouldn’t simply be ignored. Check it out.
